Pennies in the Park, Thoresby

Date of Stay 18th to 20th May 2012

If you like watching Penny Farthings hurtle round a slalom pitting themselves against Unicycles then this is the weekend for you!  Camping in the grounds of Thoresby Hotel (which is very close to Clumber Park), Pennies in the Park is a Festival of Cycling.  As well as the cycling you can dabble on some archery, visit some stalls ( Butterfingers was there) plus adjacent to the hall there is a gallery and various craft shops.  A Barn Dance on the Saturday evening with a hog roast was a great finish to what was a wet Saturday but the weather cheered up on Sunday and everyone involved seemed to enjoy it including two of my grandchildren seen here standing by one of the doors scattered around the park and used as part of a unicycle newspaper delivery race!

Loads of room to camp, just pick your spot, water close by, no electric.  We give it 8 out of 10 for fun and will go again next year if the weather cheers up.
